The Staniford Wine Company was established by well known Australian Winemaker Michael Staniford in the cool climate Great Southern wine region of Western Australia and produces the Staniford Great Southern Reserve Chardonnay and Great Southern Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wines are from mature individual vineyards specifically chosen for their ability to produce varietally faithful world class styles. The Chardonnay comes from the Albany sub-region the cool climate moderated by the maritime influence of the Southern ocean ideally suited for even ripening. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Mount Barker sub-region, further inland with much higher diurnal temperature fluctuation, allowing a slower ripening later in the season for maximal flavour accumulation.
The wines are made using traditional & modern techniques and are fermented and matured in the highest quality French oak barrels. They are complex and elegant wines quite European in style.
